It is tedious. We did it with my sister's girl scout troop a few years ago. It is really fun, though.

Re: disco balls with pins - I made one of those once, but I added a long thin bead (it's too early for me - what are they called? Roll Eyes) and a seed bead before the sequin on the pin, so it had spikes. It looked like a cross between a ufo and a sea-creature. Can't remember what happened to it... Yes, they are pretty tedious to make Grin

That's really cute! I bought a mini disco ball for a christmas tree last year. It's way too cool for me to put in the attic, so I keep it in my room.

ya spray paint eats foam. i found that out the hard way doing a scene design project. you might be able to coat the foam in something else first, then spray paint it.

Those are soooo FANTASTIC!  I am going to make some right away to hang in my window.  Do you think using tiny mirrors that you can buy at crafts stores might be easier to cover the ball with and reflect more light???  It would definately be more exspensive, but I think it may be easier to use.   Roll Eyes

Only some spraypaint eats styrafoam.  Really cheap stuff always does, but I've had pretty good luck with Rustoleum.  Light coats and let them dry between.  I really hate painting round things with a brush ;-).  You could also use some of those silver metallic type spraypaints, then it wouldn't be as obvious if you didn't cover every inch.

I bet a tile cutter(handheld version) would work perfectly to cut the cd's. Super fast!

I saw this on some kids show when I was babysitting years ago. They heated up the cds with a hairdryer before cutting them to soften them up and make them easier to cut.
Looks great!
